Re: Off-road with splash guards?

They don't break, at least for me. I was fine driving over rocks and such and it did take some beating but it stayed on.

Re: Sour smell from air conditioner

Not sure what's causing it, but have...

Re: Sloshing sound coming from under floor.

I got my windshield replaced in September of 2013. Went with a local company, but insisted on OEM Mopar part. For some reason, after the install, the auto wiper didn't function as it did before. ...

Re: Gave it back

Wow! Sorry about that. Did the dealer take back the vehicle without any issues? Did you get your money back? I am guessing you lost some. Sucks that these issues were not caught during quality...

Re: Is there any reason for the engine cover?

It just adds weight. I removed mine and saw a dramatic increase in mileage! :lol:


I think it is just to make the engine bay look good when the hood is opened.

Re: Cold Start Engine

I believe modern vehicles do not need to be idling to warm up. It will warm up faster if you drive it. Just take it easy and keep the rpms low until it warms up.

Re: Pedals not aligned with seat and steering wheel

Methinks the pedal placement is designed keeping two footers in mind. :( I do not like using cruise control because I am afraid that i might fall asleep at the wheel. :)

Re: Should my 2012 w/ 23k on it need rotors??

If it is shuddering when braking, the rotors are probably warped. Take them to a auto parts store and get them machined assuming they are in the allowed thickness. It will cost you $10 per rotor.
